  1. QUESTION; how do you plan your meals (being plant base) to get all your needed nutrients (protein, carbs, fiber)? Are you following a specific plan? and lastly could you do a what I eat so those who want to gain the minimal amount of weight possible can get an idea. please lol

  2. My hip popped out of place with my son and I had to go to physical therapy 1-2 times a week. It was the most painful thing ever. Worse than labor. I would fall and not be able to get up the pain was so bad.

    I just recently found your channel, I watched you EC video over a year ago but just started watching you more. We dont have a TV in our house either, and I plan on homeschooling. I'm interested in learning about "unschooling" and how that works.
    I also try to live with not much more than needed and your videos are inspiring me to dwindle down some more. I was wonder though, minimalist seem to not have a lot of color in their living spaces, lots of white, grays, wood and plan life. Why is that?

  3. We are a plant based unschooling family too! It has changed so much for our health. We wish you all the best for the rest of your pregnancy. Love your channel. 🤗

  4. Seeing you talk about late GD makes me wonder if I developed it later in pregnancy. With my first, I failed the 1 hour and passed the 3 hour. With the second I passed the 1 hour. With both around 32 weeks I started measuring 2 weeks ahead. I had 2 10 lb babies. Both of which had blood sugar issues.

  5. Glyburide. 👍 I was on it for the last couple weeks of my pregnancy. Be warned that you may feel extremely hungry upon waking… and obviously you won't be able to eat until your fasting window is over. I was soooo glad that kiddo was born at 38 weeks. I was just hangry all the time and not allowed to eat very much of anything for fear that my numbers would be too high. Going to all those appointments was a pain… I didn't even get to have a water birth because being on the meds technically put me into the high risk category. Kiddo ended up only being 6 pounds and I was down 5 pounds from my original weight. Best of luck to you. 💕

  6. My granddaughter came into this world weighing in at 10 lbs, 14 0z! My daughter was a very healthy vegetarian and she wasn't a crappy eater at all. Thank God neither she, nor the baby ever had any sugar issues.

  7. Arianna you talk fast🤣. There were times when I hoped you had taken a quick breather and started filming again.

  8. How did you start plant based?
    I don't necessarily want to go plant based but I want to eat better and less processed foods, I have 3 kids under 5 and I work part time.
    I want to be healthier for my kids and for my health.
    Do you share any of your recipes?

  9. I feel you on the diabetes! I was gestational diabetic with all 3 of my babies and had to do 5 shots of Insulin a day! (starting at 8-10 weeks) It's so weird how it goes away the minute the baby is born! 🙂

  10. Would you do a video on what you have in kitchen, storage for pasta/beans/etc? Video on essential oils?

  11. I had GD with my first daughter undiagnosed (even though I took the stupid test 4 times) so my daughter was 9lb 9oz. Unfortunately I had GD with my second daughter, diagnosed and needed insulin right away at 28 weeks. I drastically changed the way I ate and my GD wouldn't budge but it would climb. By the time I delivered I was on 400 units a day (meal times and evenings because my fasting number was SO high). I had major hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia for absolutely no reason at all, I'd start crashing at a blood sugar if 115. The night before I had my wee one, I had a blood sugar of 315 over less than half of a PB&J 😱
    I thankfully am not Type 2 post baby!! That was my biggest worry, and I can't thank God enough that delivery went good, baby had absolutely no blood sugar issues, and the second they took that placenta out my sugars elevated!
    My thoughts are with you, you are doing everything you can and you're doing a great job! Can't wait to see this cutie!

  12. My mom had gestational diabetes with me but they didn't find out until the 42nd week when she was in the hospital for delivery. It took her 52 hours to get me (10 pounds) outta there. Because they said it wasn't possible to do a csection any more they tore my shoulder muscles and nerves getting me out cuz I was too big and got stuck.

  13. Could you maybe make a video about eating healthier this pregnancy? Or maybe there is already a video like that.

  14. I had to take metformin, not for pregnancy, but for pcos. To put it nicely, it was like having taco bell every single day. LOL

  15. I passed (borderline) my 3 hour test with my last one but I feel like I had it. My baby weighed 11 pounds 3 ounces. I did deliver vaginally(it was my 3rd) Hes now my skinniest child 😂😂

  16. I had 2 successful pregnancies while being on high doses of metformin so im a big believer on that medication but im glad u found something that works for u!

  17. i had type 2 diabetes before i got pregnant with my 2nd child. this was back in 2011. at the time my dr wasn't comfortable with putting me on metformin so i ended up having to do 4 insulin shots a day from 11 weeks until i had him at 37 weeks. he weighed over 8 lbs despite being born 3 weeks early. i hope the medication works for you and you don't have to start doing insulin.

  18. Diabetes stinks. In any form. T1 or T2. Or pregnancy induced diabetes. Hope it all is okay for you

  19. Wow I can’t believe you are already 35 weeks! I feel like this pregnancy has gone by so fast for you ❤️ also congratulations on your mom finally deciding on a house! I don’t think I said anything on that video.

  20. I had gestational diabetes with my daughter. I had great after meal numbers. I didn't even have to adjust my diet too much. But my fasting was always too high. They put me on glyburide at night. I had a great experience with it. Just make sure you eat a high protein snack with it. Because the first I took it I didn't. And my blood sugar dropped. I also had a healthy 7 pound 7 ounce baby who had no blood sugar issues. But I was induced. I really appreciate you bringing up that it has nothing to do with your diet because my friends and family gave me a really hard time about it. You can't prevent it. People who are at a healthy weight get it and people who are overweight get it. People who eat healthy get it and people who don't get it.
